Abstract:

Nancy Makin weighed an astounding 703 pounds in May 2000. She was forty-five years old and had diabetes and heart disease.

Pushed her into cyberspace, in a chat room, she found the friendliness, the support, and even the love she'd been missing for so long. People treated her with the same respect accorded to everybody else. Thanks to these emotional connections, Nancy's life was transformed.
